    October 20, 2019  5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
    Carnegie Museum of Art

    Join us for a sensory friendly event at the Carnegie Museum of Art. Join Carnegie Museum of Art for its first Sensory-Friendly evening for adults! There will be some objects you can touch, though most of the art on view can’t be touched so that we can preserve them for years to come. We also want to learn from you so please share your thoughts about how we can bring you the best possible experience in the future!

    This event is intended for adults. The Carnegie Museum of Art is accessible via Port Authority Buses 61ABCD, 67, 69, 71ABCD, 54, 75, and 93 within two blocks.

  • HCBS Final Rule Workshop

    October 31, 2019  12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
    Pittsburgh Center for Autistic Advocacy 606 Liberty Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15222

    Federal rules about Home and Community Based Services are changing! PCAA is working with our friends at Temple University and the Pennsylvania Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) to help LGBTQIA+ people with disabilities understand the way that the rule might affect their supports and services. We also want to help our community members understand the way that they can tell the state the changes they would like to see to HCBS rules.

    Join us at PCAA to learn more about the Final Rule and how it could affect the way you get services in your home and community!

    Venue is accessible to wheelchair users. For other accessibility needs, please contact us by messaging our page or emailing info@autisticpgh.org.
